The actions of the people in the last 2 weeks have achieved a great deal. These actions have forced everyone in this country to confront the reality of this epidemic of police brutality and murder, of mass incarceration, of the criminalization of entire peoples.
Now is not the time to retreat or quiet down. Now is not the time to fall for the honeyed words and empty promises of the oppressors, nor to be misled by their slanders. Now is the time to intensify and to spread this movement and the righteous actions taken so far.
Many more people must be involved-there are plenty of people who have not come out in struggle yet, who must and should and can be won to come out. Organizing through Twitter and Facebook has its definite strengths, but people also need to get together in person and decide how to take this higher.
